Most of people have a misconception that discolored skin needs no treatment; it will get normal on its own with time. But, it is not so! Some pigmentation like those caused by Acne can lighten up with time, but never goes out of sight. In fact, a majority of discoloration is required to be treated with high-powered active ingredients and in-office treatments so as to get a flawless skin! Are you confused which treatment to take? Don’t worry! Here is a piece of information shared by Dr. Jyoti Gupta:
- For Minimal Darkness: If you have less darkness, you can go for Microdermabrasion. During a Microdermabrasion treatment, the topmost layer of skin is gently removed so as to get an escape from sunspots, and other superficial and minimal discoloration. There are various versions of microdermabrasion such as DermaSweep that provides you a secondary step where specialized anti-pigment ingredients are filled into your skin so as to brighten it.
- For More Rigid Spots: If you are getting irritated by tougher spots, you must take a Chemical Peeling treatment. Glycolic acid, Salicylic acid and TCA chemical peels are often recommended to evict discoloration. As per our skin experts, Chemical peeling provides better and faster results. But, the outcomes relies on the type and depth of pigment. Also, as every skin color and a person with a history of scarring is not suitable for a chemical peel, he/she must search for some other option.
- Discoloration due to Sun: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is the best choice for targeting sun-induced discoloration. It involves light-based energy pulsed onto the skin along with targeting the blood vessels. The light aims to lift up the discoloration in the skin and provide you better skin complexion.
- Severe Discoloration: Try Fractional Laser Resurfacing if you have experienced a severe discoloration. This treatment gives you the desired appearance by eliminating even more tougher pigmentation. Lasers like Halo, Fraxel, and Clear+ Brillant are used, and they create safe & controlled microinjuries in your skin so as to accelerate the skin’s natural healing process. Thus, you get a revived skin.
No matter, which treatment you take, it’s is very much crucial to follow skin care tips and prevent your skin from harmful sun rays.
